NRM 25 Years
Former British Prime Minister Harold Wilson once famously said that a week is a long time in politics. Going by that measure, twenty-five uninterrupted years for the NRM and President Yoweri Museveni, at the helm of national politics would indeed sound like a very long time.
But that is if you do not consider the magnitude of the political, social, economic and physical work that has been compressed into these years, to put Uganda on its path to recovery.
